The Best Foundations, Candy Style: No. 5: KATE High Coverage Foundation


This week I am reviewing my 5 current favourite foundations! Last but not least to my 5 favourite foundations of the moment is this little gem from KATE (a baby brand of Kanebo Japan). KATE does not look as pretty as Lavshuca, but it does produce less fluffy, more useful products, in my opinion. KATE High Coverage Liquid Foundation is not a typically Japanese base, because other Japanese liquid bases I have used offer a […]

Covering Me: Kate Under Eye Concealer and Pore Concealer Review


Kate is one of my favourite Japanese brands. Visually, its nothing spectacular, but I do think their products are really good quality for a fair price. I picked up their new(ish) under eye concealer and pore concealer a few months ago to try. I do often think that no concealer can do it all – one for spots and redness might be too thick for under the eyes, something too light won’t work on the […]

Kanebo Purenavi Face Masks for the U Zone and T Zone!


Kanebo Purenavi has two “zone” masks which I purchased from Adambeauty a while ago. I was attracted by the fact that the masks are tailored for different needs – the T-Zone mask is for the oilies and the U-Zone mask is for lifting. The U-Zone is a clear gel and the T-zone mask is more of a creamy clay. The other thing i like about these masks is that they are made for massage – […]

Kate Gradical Eye Eyeshadow Palette in Gold and Orange Review


I purchased Kanebo’s KATE new Gradical Eyeshadow Palettes recently. KATE is a pretty good brand in terms of quality although the last few eyeshadow palette offerings were a bit shimmer, a bit sheer. The Gradical palette has 4 gradual shades and a white eye base which is quite common in Japanese eyeshadows palettes. They are thoughtful like that. I have so many of these little palettes I went for shades I don’t normally choose – […]

Lips of the Day: Kanebo Media Clear Shimmery Lipgloss in WT-1


Media, is a Kanebo brand and one of the cheaper, affordable ones. This sort of shows in the packaging, which is very bare, very simple. None of their products really appeal that much to be since they don’t stand out visually but nevertheless, its a very affordable and pretty good quality. I bought this lipgloss cos I just wanted something simple and its about £3! Its called WT-1. Its a clear lipgloss with very shine […]

Lips of the Day: Lavshuca Dramatic Memory Rouge Lipstick in RS-3


Pretty pretty pretty. That’s all I can say about this Lavshuca Dramatic Memory Rouge (I think this means its long lasting) lipstick. I only bought the one – I’ve got lipsticks coming out of my ears. It comes in this pretty case – it reminds me of Jill Stuart. Rememeber the days, ladies, when Lavshuca was easily the prettiest and nicest Japanese make up brand out there? Its fallen to the wayside of late. I […]

Coffret D’or Eye Shadow Base Primer Review in 01 White


For as long as I can remember now, I’ve always used an eyeshadow base or primer. Something a bit sticky, a bit wet, a bit greasy as a base…it doesn’t feel right to me at all to just put eyeshadow on a lid. I am addicted, therefore to buying eyeshadow primers! Ask me, I bet I’ve tried it… My latest addiction is this Coffret D’or Eye base which comes in two shades: 01 – Sheer […]

Review: Lavshuca Mix Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Autumn 2009

Lavshuca by Kanebo, is one of the reasons why I fell so hard in love with make up, yet the brand has been missing the point, so to speak, for quite a few seasons. I have skipped a lot of the last few collections because they looked repetitive and somewhat dull. But hey! The new palettes for Autumn sure look pretty: I choose BU-1 which I paid about £10 for from Adambeauty: There’s no doubt […]
